Software Feature Releases
Ooyala Chromecast HTML5 Player
Ooyala has released the latest version of its HTML5 player, which now supports streaming on Google’s Chromecast device.
Ooyala empowers the Chromecast experience by integrating its V3 HTML5 player with Google Media Library and EME which customers can start leveraging. To deploy Ooyala’s Chromecast solution, customers can collaborate with Ooyala to build their customized Sender-Receiver experience. Sender and Receiver applications are to be built in partnership with Ooyala or 3rd party developers, integrating these applications with Ooyala mobile SDKs (only required for mobile-based Senders) and V3 HTML5 player (Receiver).
To collaborate with Ooyala to build a customized Sender-Receiver experience, contact your Customer Success Manager.
